Petition: Education (Enfield) (21 Nov 1966)

Hon. Anthony Berry: I beg leave to present a Petition on behalf of parents, teachers, school governors and others troubled about proposed educational developments in the London Borough of Enfield, part of which I have the honour to represent in this House, another part being represented by my right hon. Friend the Member for Enfield, West (Mr. Iain Macleod) who shares my deep concern in this human problem. The...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Borough Elections.) (29 Nov 1966)

Hon. Anthony Berry: For a short time I thought that the hon. Member for Croydon, South (Mr. Winnick) was starting on a point with which I could agree, but before he could develop it, Mr. Lever, you correctly ruled him out of order, so I cannot comment. For the hon. Gentleman to talk about ways of increasing interest in local government elections in one breath and then, in the next, to support this Bill to...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Borough Elections.) (29 Nov 1966)

Hon. Anthony Berry: I bow to your Ruling, Mr. Lever, and I hope that the hon. Member for Croydon, South will accept that reason for my not following him. I am glad that the hon. Member for Orpington (Mr. Lubbock) is back, because both he and the hon. Member for Croydon, South suggested that neither of them had had letters on this subject. I am provoked into reading out one letter to show that there are bodies...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Borough Elections.) (29 Nov 1966)

Hon. Anthony Berry: I must disappoint the hon. Gentleman. There are now no Independents on the council. There were until the last election. The council has a Labour majority. I will refer to that in a moment. [HON. MEMBERS: "Oh."] I do not think that hon. Members could have listened to my right hon. Friend if they still believe that we have a Conservative majority in that part of London. Basically, what we are...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Borough Elections.) (29 Nov 1966)

Hon. Anthony Berry: I was not in this House at the time. I do not remember the Liberal candidate in Southgate, at the last General Election, who went down from second to third place, taking any view or saying anything in his election address about it, or calling for local elections in any particular year. The Home Secretary, on the Second Reading of the Bill, claimed that, if elections followed each other...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Borough Elections.) (29 Nov 1966)

Hon. Anthony Berry: Is not Amendment No. 7 under discussion with the others in this group, Mr. Lever?

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Borough Elections.) (29 Nov 1966)

Hon. Anthony Berry: Thank you, Mr. Lever. I appreciate that Amendment No. 31, which appears in my name, is not in cluded, but I hope that my remarks will be in order on Amendment No. 7. One of my reasons for feeling strongly about this is, in particular, that my right hon. Friend the Member for Enfield, West and I both represent part of the borough in which a Labour majority was elected by 31 votes to 29 and...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Borough Elections.) (29 Nov 1966)

Hon. Anthony Berry: I appreciate the intervention of my hon. Friend the Member for Bath (Sir E. Brown), who speaks with close knowledge of the area and of the subject. What he says is quite right. In the debates on the Bill, I suffer under the advantage of inevitably having to speak after my right hon. Friend the Member for Enfield, West, who is likely to deal with all the local points which are of relevance....

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Borough Elections.) (29 Nov 1966)

Hon. Anthony Berry: I thank the right hon. Lady for giving way. As I presented the Petition, I thought that she would allow me to make a point about it. The phrase in the Petition was: On behalf of parents, teachers, school governors and others troubled about proposed educational developments in the London Borough of Enfield."—[OFFICIAL REPORT, 21st November, 1966; Vol. 736, c. 909.] One does not have to live...

Business of the House (1 Dec 1966)

Hon. Anthony Berry: First, would the right hon. Gentleman appreciate, in connection with Monday's business, that there are hon. Members who consider that a Bill which takes away from London electors their democratic rights for a year deserves full consideration in the House? Secondly, would he allow time between now and Christmas for a debate on traffic in London, which, I think he will agree, is particularly...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Borough Elections.) (5 Dec 1966)

Hon. Anthony Berry: Mr. Anthony Berry (Southgate) rose——

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Borough Elections.) (5 Dec 1966)

Hon. Anthony Berry: I am sure that the hon. Member for Erith and Crayford (Mr. Wellbeloved) will understand if I do not follow him at this hour. The Committee has heard a lot about Bexley this afternoon and the failure of the party opposite to put the matter before the electors next year speaks for itself. May I return to a subject which is now familiar to the Committee—the London Borough of Enfield. The...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Borough Elections.) (5 Dec 1966)

Hon. Anthony Berry: I do not know whether it has been corrected in HANSARD, where the word "Cheshire" appears. However, I accept what the right hon. Lady says. Then she referred to Cambridge. Does she not know that there is a university there with undergraduates in residence who might use their university address when signing the petition? She referred to Surrey where there lives a person who used to live in my...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Borough Elections.) (5 Dec 1966)

Hon. Anthony Berry: Yes, Bournemouth. I hope to come back to that one later. One in over 10,000—does that make a strong case for the right hon. Lady? She referred to Nottingham, where there is a recently married schoolteacher who is now looking for a house in my borough. In Brighton, there is a widow who has moved there after living since she was born in Enfield. In Oldham, there are two people whose daughter...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Borough Elections.) (5 Dec 1966)

Hon. Anthony Berry: If the hon. Gentleman were better informed, he would be cheering my right hon. Friend and not Uncle Tom Cobley. The right hon. Lady also referred to other parts of London. There was W.9, where there is a grandparent who has two grandchildren living in the borough, and S.E.12, where there are people who used to live in the borough. The right hon. Lady mentioned Chigwell, and I spoke to the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Board of Trade: London (Third Airport) (8 Dec 1966)

Hon. Anthony Berry: Will the Minister also bear in mind the fact that by the time this airport is built the large jumbo jets will be operating and that the question of transport between the airport and London is of vital importance? Will he take that fact into consideration in coming to a quick conclusion on this matter?

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill (13 Dec 1966)

Hon. Anthony Berry: The hon. Member made exactly the same point in Committee. I took him up on it then and I quoted at considerable length a letter I had received from a body of voters in my constituency. The hon. Gentleman was present at the time, because I commented on the fact that he had come back to his seat.

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill (13 Dec 1966)

Hon. Anthony Berry: The hon. Member must recollect that, in the last debate, I mentioned three examples given by his right hon. Friend, all of which were of school teachers living outside my borough, but teaching at schools in the borough. Does he suggest that they had no right to sign that petition?
